Loads of color surround the daisy

I'm back after a long break. The spring and summer have been busy months with travel, work and family. I've also been working on a steady flow of custom blankets, so unfortunately this blog has been a casualty.

One of the newest orders is for a baby afghan to match a shower invite. My customer liked the daisy pattern, but was looking for colors similar to the image below:



So I came up with this square:





I still need to ask if she would like it bordered in white or just purple. Maybe even a darker purple? What do you think? 

I'm really looking forward to seeing all of the squares together. I'll be sure to post a photo when I'm finished. I hope you've been having a wonderful summer!

    1. Hi Luna :) Too much traveling, and I tend to unplug when I'm away... I think the white would be nice to tie everything together. The customer would like to see a darker shade of purple. I found one that I think will go well with the orchid color. I think I like the idea of adding more color just as much as the white border: I don't think you can ever have too much color! I'll post a photo of the final blanket when I get there. I hope you've been having a wonderful summer.

    1. Thank you for such a thoughtful note! My daughter's name is Tillie (after my great aunt - I wrote about her here: http://tillietulip.blogspot.com/2012/02/feeling-nostalgic.html). I recently found out her full name was Matilda. Tillara is so unique and very pretty. We are fortunate to have these Tillies/Tillys in our lives :) I hope you have a wonderful weekend, and thanks again for your post!
